Welcome to the Official Website of The Keytars wedding band Lancashire. If you are here then you’ve found the website of one of the hardest working wedding bands in Lancashire. Have a look at some of our previous weddings.

Here are a few photos of what we’ve been up to recently…

Lockdown Sessions @ The Layton Institute during Covid 19. Live streamed with other local bands.

The Keytars were formed back in late 2009 when Chris and Paul met Andy Hall (that rhymes!). Chris and Paul go back 30 years together with their music, starting a high energy rock and pop party band called Paradox when they were 15 at school in 1995.

They gigged together on and off until they finally landed a contract for Thomson holidays (now TUI) in 2008 in a function band duo called Silhouette. This took them off to Thomson’s first ever Sensatori resort in Crete for two seasons. Once they returned in September 2009 they bumped into Andy Hall and eventually asked him to join them. Finding Andy added a rock edge and comedy to their act that creates a mix of fun, entertaining and impressive wedding entertainment.

All three members have a wealth of experience of performing at many Weddings, Functions and Corporate events around the UK and their experience brings a unique style and powerful performance to any wedding. Added to that an eclectic repertoire and they are guaranteed to get ANY crowd on their feet and onto the dance floor!


As with most wedding bands, included in our price is 2 x 45 minute high energy live sets of suitable wedding (party) songs which are tried and tested, we don’t offer a bespoke set list option. Weddings have a wide variety of guests, old and young, varying tastes in music, so we try to play a wide variety of the best wedding songs to please the large majority of guests. 


We can also include a Spotify DJ’ing service at a small surcharge for before, in-between and after our sets. Requests are welcome and as long as your venue has wifi, it’s no problem. Please let us know if your venue does not have wifi and we will organise an alternative. We find this a good option for a couple of reasons…

1) There’s just more space without a separate DJ, and
2) It is generally cheaper for the bride and groom for the wedding band to DJ rather than hiring one separately. However, we certainly don’t have anything against wedding DJ’s and if you would prefer a DJ we have some great friends who we can recommend.


If you need wedding breakfast or drinks reception music we can help! Chris and Paul will generally do this and perform wedding acoustic songs including chilled numbers from the likes of Frank Sinatra, Ed Sheeran among many others.


Our PA system is big enough for approximately 300 guests and includes a full lighting set up. If you have more guests than this then please let us know at the enquiry stage and will include PA hire into our quote.


If you would like your first dance to be played live we will learn it for you if it is technically possible. If your looking for first dance ideas, it really depends what songs mean the most to you.

We are one of the very few wedding bands in Lancashire that does not have a live drummer, and are very fortunate to be able to comfortably abide by any venue’s noise limiter. Real drums are the main issue for venues that have problems perhaps with neighbours regarding loud music. The Keytars are able to control the volume a lot more than a band with a live drum kit so you have nothing to worry about if your venue has noise restrictions in place.


Prices depend on date and location as well as if you need the trio or just a duo, (Chris and Paul). Please feel free to send an email enquiry, and you will receive a full email back outlining our various excellent options and prices.

We have performed at many of the best wedding venues in Lancashire including, Stanley House, Barton grange, Bartle Hall, Ribby Hall, The Villa Wrea Green, The Dalmeny StAnnes, The Grand Hotel, StAnnes, Springfield House, Pilling and Wyresdale Park – Applestore cafe to name only a few.

So if you are looking for a wedding bands to hire, you will be in safe hands with The Keytars.
